Kennedy Doc Says Senator Resting, Watching Red Sox

After a long afternoon, Sen. Edward Kennedy's doctor has released a statement about the highest-profile patient being treated at Massachusetts General Hospital.

The doctor says Kennedy did not have a stroke but did suffer a seizure, as previously reported.

"Senator Kennedy was admitted to Massachusetts General today after experiencing a seizure at his home," said Dr. Larry Ronan, a primary care physician at Massachusetts General Hospital. "Preliminary tests have determined that he has not suffered a stroke and is not in any immediate danger. He's resting comfortably, and watching the Red Sox game with his family. Over the next couple of days, Senator Kennedy will undergo further evaluation to determine the cause of the seizure, and a course of
treatment will be determined at that time."
